and shot at 90 degrees? >> reporter: then defense attorney mark o'mara grabbed the dummy to support his argument. >> the injuries on mr. zimmerman's back on his head consistent with someone doing this? >> reporter: and on the final day of testimony, george zimmerman's father, robert zimmerman returned to the stand to address the screams heard on the 911 tape. >> absolutely, it's my son, george. >> is that an opinion that you still have through today? >> certainly. >> reporter: in another important ruling, judge debra nelson will decide whether or not to grant the prosecution's request to apply lesser charges of manslaughter and aggravated assault. >> self-defense is self-defense to everything. there shouldn't be a second degree murder charge and shouldn't be any lessers. >> so, we are getting, wolf, to the beginning of the end of this case. you laid it out earlier and i'll cut through what is to be expected again. today at 1:00 p.m. we expect the jury to arrive here to hear closing arguments from the prosecution. that could take two hours. then tomorrow on friday, we expect to hear from
in the defense's closing argument yesterday. >> yeah. >> where, you know, mark o'mara, the defense attorney paused for four minutes, and made everyone wonder, what was trayvon martin doing for those four minutes? why didn't he walk home? god forbid that a black child can be free and walk around for four minutes or 40 minutes or 40 days, if he wants to, frankly. right? >> right. >> and i think, again, there was a sort of extension of this idea, this crazy idea of the black body as a weapon, when he, you know, pulled into the jury room with this huge piece of concrete, and said, he was armed with a piece of sidewalk. something he can't even actually pick up, right? >> we have got to talk about this. this moment, where he comes in, carrying this piece of sidewalk, and the discourse that we have heard, repeatedly, that trayvon martin was armed with sidewalk. i keep thinking, this is great. because we now no longer need a second amendment. right, you don't really need guns. as long as you pave all the streets and make sure there are sidewalks, and everyone is equally armed. that is really about
, going to be a defense verdict. mark o'mara in his closing arguments suggested to the jury they should come back with a very speedy verdict, and of course for the defense, i think we're past the point where we could that could have happened. now they're really digging in. they're entrenched. there's real give and take going on in that jury room between different sides. it will be interesting to see how it turns out. >> you had said earlier that it might be quick, but it's changed. >> you never know, once you submit a case to a jury. when i have clients and they're going into trial, you can't predict. take six people from the community at random, you don't now how they're going to view a case. >> what sort of concerns or questions might you expect coming up maybe today or tomorrow that may come from the jury, out to the judge there? >> i can only assume they're mulling over the same questions that everybody's been looking at in this case. is it self-defense or is it murder or manslaughter? what does the evidence support? we know that yesterday, they asked for an inventory of the evidenc
prosecutor, sunny hostin, and jeffrey toobin. do you think that mark o'mara scored the points that he wanted to? >> i think at first blush you'd say why would you ever do that? but if you think about it, i think what he was trying to do is set up the closing argument. he wants to argue later on, look, here's somebody who told the police initially that it wasn't him and now he's ekw equivocatin equivocating. whoever is listening is listening through the framework he wanted to believe. mark telegraphed that's where he was in the press conference. it is a gutsy call, high risk/high reward in the sense that you never want to be looked at as having kind of beaten up on somebody who has gone through a tragedy like this and he didn't beat him up in any sense but the up side, i think, doesn't necessarily outweigh the potential for a down side here. >> danny, do you think the jury believes tracy martin when he says, no, the two police officers that testified are essentially wrong. it wasn't that i said i coun't identify my voice, it's that i said i wasn't sure. >> that's a credibility determination.
't take place on the stand. but when mark o'mara said the defense planned to rest wednesday. martin savidge, cnn, sanford, florida. >> want to dig deeper with our panelist. sunny hostin, marcia clark. and the defense table, danny savalos and mark geragos. and dr. lawrence kobalanski. mark, just about that neighbor who testified, do you think anybody buys that? if some neighbor of mine testified about what my voice sounds like when i'm screaming, how would a neighbor know this? >> you know, there's a more cynical view as to why they played that neighbor's video in court today. and i'm not going to inflame what is already an inflammatory situation. i don't think anybody is saying this is the ultimate in terms of a piece of evidence that they put on. i have to say that i'm a little cynical about this. >> sunny, what about you? how do you think it played in the courtroom? does it make any sense to you? >> not really. it's sort of the law of diminishing returns now. when you have george zimmerman's mother and uncle saying those are his cries for help on that tape, i think that's okay. ev
's a liar. >> defense attorney mark o'mara attacked the prosecution's theory that zimmerman's conduct meets the standard for a second-degree murder charge saying his client is under a lot of stress. >> when he sees that they present this amount of evidence and as he is some sinister mastermind who would decide to commit a heinous crime and try to figure out how to get away with it, in my opinion got to lead to a lot more stress and anxiety with george. >> now, at the end of all the testimony, the defense can ask the judge to make a stand your ground ruling for george zimmerman. if she believes his story of self-defense, she can acquit him or deny that motion and allow the jury to handle it. >> thank you very much. up next, stuck in brazil. the fielgt to bring an american woman and their young daughter home after their passports are seized in south america right after these messages. and their after their passports are seized in south america right after these messages. what makes your family smile? backflips and cartwheels. love, warmth. here, try this. mmmm, ok! ching! i like the fact that

memory of the day of autopsy." attorney mark o'mara asked the judge to acquit his client, after the state rested its case, arguing prosecutors had not proven second-degree murder. judge debra nelson denied that motion. the motion for judgment of >> acquittal are denied. putting the defense on deck, as this trial moves into week three. george howell, cnn, sanford, florida. >>james:in quebec, officials say two more bodies have been found following a train derailment and explosion. here's video of the scene. five people were killed when a train carrying crude oil derailed. killing five people and igniting explosions and fires that destroyed a downtown community center. police say 40 people are still unaccounted for. but that number could fluctuate as the investigation continues. >>anny:thirty four people have been killed in an attack outside the headquarters of the republican guard in cairo. the egyptian health ministry say 300 people were also injured in shooting outside the building. earlier, military officials had said gunmen killed at least five supporters of the former president and one
is possible. by the way, i haven't heard the prosecution argue this yet, and today in court mark o'mara demonstrated generally a gun being holstered inside the waist band, and here is how he demonstrated. he demonstrated that the gun would be holstered in the front and i didn't hear a prosecution objection to that. you now if i had been prosecuting the case i might have objected, that's inconsistent with the evidence because george zimmerman had the gun holstered behind him on that video. so maybe this will all be pulled together in closing argument by the prosecution. but it is an interesting point, i think, about the evidence and the way that it is coming out in the courtroom. >> msnbc legal analyst lisa bloom, thanks for your time and thoughts. the court is now in recess until 1:30. when we come back after the break, there are new indications that pilot error may have contributed to saturday's deadly asiana airline crash in san francisco. we'll get the latest on the investigation and victims on flight 214 next on "now." "and one of the most efficient trucking networks," "with safe, e
to a close, john, there was also a discussion about lineups. and the defense, mark o'mara, was making the point that individually, you would normally show people six different examples, not just one. and there was some -- what was the point of that? why do you think the defense were trying to push that? >> you know, i'm still trying to -- i'm still trying to figure out the whole kabuki theater here that was happening. but the one thing that we have to keep in mind, the police bought george zimmerman's version of events from moment one. that's why he was -- hadn't been arrested for 44 days. that's why -- i mean, that's why we're having this discussion. and that's why, i think, bill lee was put on the stand. to sort of talk about that. i think the threads that we saw through that testimony will be woven together in closing arguments. >> you and i watched trayvon martin's father, and it was difficult to watch. >> yeah. >> as he described. how powerful was that testimony? >> i think it was very powerful. and i think it was a mistake for the defense to do that. i think -- i believe it was
was a witness called by the defense. although, after that tense exchange, you have to wonder whether he and mark o'mara are christmas card buddies. it was a short exchange. basically, what i took from that was that the decision to play the tapes for the family members, for the half dozen or so family members, that decision to play those tapes before they were made public was a decision made out of consideration for the family. also, the decision not to play those tapes with law enforcement present was a decision that was made at the request of family members as well. so again, not on the stand for very long at all today. somewhere between five and ten minutes. before that, i think you guys were talking about dr. vincent di maio, who to this point has probably been arguably the defense's strongest witness. >> all right, craig melvin. thanks for that. stay with us. let's check in with our legal team. patrick murphy is back. seema ire is back. paul henderson is back. paul, i know you want to jump in. what do you got? >> i think why they put him on, because the defense team wanted to marginalize the
statement didn't take place on the stand, but when mark o'mara said the defense planned to rest wednesday. martin savidge, cnn san ford, florida. >> i want to dig deeper into the day's events with our panel of legal analyst and prosecutor sunny hostin and marsha clark, her latest thriller is called "killer ambition" and danny and mark cgaragos and lawrence here in manhattan. first of all, the neighbor that testified, do you think anybody buys that? if some neighbor of mine testified about what my voice sounds like when i'm screaming, how would a neighbor know this? >> you know, there's a more scenical view as to why they play that neighbor's video in court today and i won't inflame an antiinflammatory situation. nobody is saying this is scenical or ultimate in terms of piece of evidence they put on. i have to say that i'm a little scenical about this. >> sunny, what about you? how do you think it played in the courtroom? did it make any sense to you? >> not really. i mean, it's sort of the law dim minute in this ca diminishing returns now. zimmerman's mom and uncle say those are his cries
attorney mark o'mara revealed today that the defense has a few more witnesses to call. he hopes to rest his case tomorrow. if that happens, this trial could come to an end before the week is over. the major revelation from today is the testimony of forensic pathologist dr. vincent de mayo. take a look at what he had to say. >> by the nature of this case, it's more about determining whether the physical evidence is consistent with mr. zimmerman's account. it's my opinion that the muzzle of the
the success of dr. dimaio, sunny and mark say led to why mark o'mara said i'm done. i don't need to bring others it to the stand. do you think that's why he made that decision? more a last-minute decision or do you know coming into today i'm done? >> usually defense attorneys have something in reserve if they think they have to extend the case a bit. i think a lot of attorneys that i know who are watching the case think that the case has been shredded. the prosecution's case has been shredded by the defense. now you have this forensic evidence that lines up pretty much perfectly with the zimmerman story. there were elements that line up with the prosecutor's story as well. they needed a knockout punch forrencecally, the prosecutors, to show that zimmerman's story was an impossibility given the physical evidence and, frankly, they didn't get that knockout punch in the cross-examination of this very impressive forensic pathologist. >> and i wanted to play one other thing that the forensic pathologist said, mark, and this was about this issue of trayvon martin and where his hands were. zimme
on this in the morning. mark o'mara zimmerman's attorney will call a few more witnesses and some time tomorrow, shep, rest their case. >> shepard: phil keating in central florida. the issue of race in this case has played a significant part in the trial. explicitly as undercurrent that slips into the state's narrative. prosecutors have said george zimmerman profiled trayvon martin as a criminal. and they have played previous phone call zimmerman made to police to support suspicious characters. each who, with, was black. but prosecutors are not the only ones who can use race to try to prove a point. today the defense insinuated that race may have played a part in the initial charges of george zimmerman. team fox coverage continues. trace gallagher live for us. the defense here, trace, was trying to show that there was tension between city leaders. >> yeah. in fact, former sanford police shep bill lee, shep, has testified that city manager a man named martin bonapard. lee said he recommended the 911 calls where screams can be heard in the background trayvon martin. they should hear them individually i
as you indicated mark o'mara saying, giving every impression, the last witness that we saw, the neighbor, one of george zimmerman's neighbors, eloise della guard would be the last witness for the defense. right now inside the courtroom they're wrapping up a hearing, a hearing that started this morning. this is a hearing about whether this specific animation is going to do be admitted. the defense spent two hours this morning arguing for this animation to be admitted into evidence. and this is an animation that essentially depicts how the altercation started, how the fight went down, and it is based largely on witness accounts, defense witness accounts, it's based on police reports as well. an earlier version of this animation actually showed trayvon martin on top, punching george zimmerman. the state argued successfully to have that portion of it tossed out. the animation at this particular point is essentially a series of still photos. nonetheless, the state says that the entire animation should not be allowed. but, again, going back to the timetable, michael, at this particular point,
down. and zimmerman's lawyer mark o'mara says his clients will never be safe because there is a percentage of the population who are angry and might take it out on him. let me be very clear. from the beginning of this, when i was called and came in just to say this should go to trial and should not be decided in a police station, this family has said we believe in peace and we believe in the criminal justice system. i went and helped to lead the organize the first big rally in sanford, where tens of thousands of people came. and from that rally all the way through the rallies and the marches subsequent, leading to this trial, not one brick has been thrown. not one window broke. with all that on the right wing has tried to project, we have all been a movement of nonviolence just seeking fairness and justice. and this is not new. i sat in a courtroom many years ago, well over a decade ago, with the family of amadou diallo, a young man from africa, who was killed in the bronx, unarmed, not committing a crime, shot dead by four policemen. and the trial was moved out of th
sure they have a good view of this. look at those defense attorneys, mark o'mara and don west, watching what's going on in the well of this courtroom, talking amongst themselves about this, almost ready for an objection. they're transfixed by all of this. they can't miss a moment. listen in. >> as this event is transitioning and you're coming back, if this comes back, then we maintain that. >> right. >> if it's a struggle that's forward, the 90 degree reference, i want to be clear. the manner in which you're describing, i don't know how you can get a 90 degree entry if you're sitting straight back like this. >> i'm not sitting straight back. >> from my perspective, it looks like you're more vertically upright. and the two of you form a 90. if the two of you form a 90 where you're straight up and he brings a gun to bear, just based on the dynamics of his arm, there wouldn't be a way for it to go straight in. there has to be mutual movement. >> as if the defendant started to sit up and trayvon martin was getting up, you're saying there couldn't be a 90 degree angle. >> am i saying there c
, and as the state indicated, she follows the defense attorney mark o'mara on twitter as well as george zimmerman's defense team. what were they trying to do by calling this witness? >> well, this had already come into evidence, because all of the 911 calls george had made and prior break-ins in the community had come. i think they were trying to put her on, because now it's relevant. let's look at the facts. this happened in the previous year, fall of 2011 the young man was arrested, again, he lived in the complex, by the way, rearrested beginning of february. so i find it interesting the defense put them on. maybe they're trying to show that george was concerned this defendant had been released again, as was initially, but obviously shows crime in their neighborhood, not profiling. >> why do you say it doesn't show profiling? it's been introduced earlier he had called in a number of times, saying that an african-american young man were suspiciously walking around the neighborhood. do you think at all that this witness brought some of these racial and profiling issues to the surface? >> well, i
this. doing the dummy exchange when the dummy was brought out. mark o'mara used the dummy and the state used it as well. the jurors in the back row during that demonstration actually stood up to watch what was happening. john guy there. juror 6, this is a juror we been paying attention to. this juror takes notes consistently. this is a native floridian. she's been in the area for ten years. she's unemployed right now. she has two kids. one 11 and one 13. she also asked a lot of questions during the selection process. and juror e-4 is someone according to the documents that all the jurors submitted, she keeps her head down when that 911 call has been played. and this is, of course, that call has been played over and over throughout the course of the trial. recent transplant from iowa. watches football, reads, travels. two of the other jurors have developed a bit of a relationship. they frequently nod at each other, smile at each other and pasds notes. this is a jury that has been engaged. something else about this jury. every time judge nelson has asked if they want to continue or take a
be appropriate. no, no, no, it is going to be much longer. >> that was defense attorney mark o'mara after the court session today. back with me, lisa bloom, faith jenkins, and marcia clark, author of the new novel, "killer ambition." marcia, starting off the day, the defense's animation can be used, not as an exhibit. it will not be something going into the jury room with the exhibits but it can be shown to them used as an illustration device during the closing arguments. so it seems like we'll see it during closing arguments, how do you expect it to work? >> well, they will use it as an exhibit as an illustration of their view of the case. showing, of course, that george zimmerman was the victim and that trayvon martin was the aggressor. will it work? i know that many say it can be extremely impressive to the jury. but in my experience you can tip it a little too far to the cartoon side. the fact that this animation looks like avatar can make it look like a cartoon event. what i think, something much more compelling is john guy getting on top of the dummy in the courtroom. that brings it
would be behind your left leg. >> okay. >> reporter: defense attorney mark o'mara used the same manikin to give jurors and alternate view. >> could it have happened this way? >> yes. >> reporter: a key question for the jurors -- who was screaming on that 911 call moments before the fatal shot? witnesses on both sides said they could identify the voice. >> my son, george. >> i felt that inside of my heart, i said that is george. >> that's my son george. >> that's georgie. >> trayvon benjamin martin. >> my brother. >> my son. >> reporter: other questions the jury may end up debating -- who threw the first punch, how serious were zimmerman's injuries. >> even if you don't do enough to injure the brain significantly, you're going to have some stunning effect. >> he said that he felt light headed, had had a headache. >> he did complain of trauma to his head meaning he had had the lacerations. >> i apologize. other than that. >> and, again, the story that he told me of his head being struck against the ground. >> how would you characterize -- or classify the contusions, the severity of the co
to understand that? >> i think that this mark o'mara, the defense attorney is extremely skilled. he is the best attorney in that courtroom. he will definitely -- >> bill: what about the wisdom of the prosecution today giving a three hour wrap? i mean, three hours? >> a fair question. a fair question. >> bill: come on. >> if, indeed, there was a narrative that continued uninterrupted for three hours then it could be three hours, 13 hours, that's not relevant. remember how effective the prosecution was in the opening statements. they outlawyered the defense in a way that made don west, the defense attorney, presenting the opening argument seem pathetic and amateurish. he recovered and became a much better advocate for his client. now, in the closing argument, this is a prosecution that is grasping at straws. this is a prosecution adrift. this is a prosecution who knows they have no chance of proving the case that they brought before the nation and the world. >> bill: why spend three hours illuminating that? >> well, what he is attempting to do it's distract people, i believe, from the nexus of th
of showing how could possibly it could have gone down the way george zimmerman said. and then mark o'mara gets on top of the dummy, which weighs about maybe five pounds and starts pounding into it the ground to show how george zimmerman's head could have been pounded. i hope somebody pointed out the fact that that dummy weighs 5 pounds and george zimmerman weighed 200. you don't pound a person that way. >> john, go ahead, quickly. >> uwas going to say you also got to look at how he was moving around when the police arrived. he wasn't stumbling, falling. all of his gait was perfectly normal. this is not a person who had been pounded into the cement because he would have been dizzy or something. >> and did not ask for medical attention which says his state of mind was that he didn't even the had what injuries one could argue. panel, please stay with us. much more after the break. stay with us. i met a turtle friend today so, you don't get that very often. it seemed like it was more than happy to have us in his home. so beautiful. avo: more travel. more options. more personal. whatever you'r
sanford, florida. >> reporter: defense attorney mark o'mara spent three hours and used a number of props trying to convince the jury of his client's innocence. >> you look at all this evidence and you have to say, i have a reasonable doubt. >> reporter: in february of 2012, george zimmerman spotted trayvon martin walking through his neighborhood and called authorities. >> are you following him? >> yeah. >> okay, we don't need you to do that. >> reporter: the teenager ran toward his home but minutes later the two men met up. the defense played the jury this animation showing the teen attacking their client unprovoked. >> self-defense is a defense to everything. >> reporter: but the prosecution claims it was zimmerman who tracked down martin. >> the defendant didn't shoot trayvon martin because he had to; he shot him because he wanted to. >> reporter: the jury has three choices. they can find zimmerman guilt of manslaughter, or second- degree murder, or they can find him not guilty. police initially let zimmerman go after the shooting leading to nationwide protests. >> no justice, no peace
and completely innocent. because i would ask you to check that one. >> defense attorney mark o'mara used his clothes to insist again that george zimmerman acted in self-defense and to reject any suggestion that he had it in for trayvon martin. instead o'mara argued it was martin who went looking for trouble that night. he pointed to the four minutes between the time the 17-year-old initially ran from zimmerman and when he stopped running. >> the person who decided that this is going to continue, that it was going to become a violent event was the guy without didn't go home when he had the chance to. it was the guy who decided to lie in wait, i guess, plan his move, it seems, decide what he was going to do, and went. >> reporter: martin was unarmed but the defense lawyer argued the teenager still had potential weapons at his disposal. and that he ease-- that he used them. >> that, cement, the sidewalk, and that is not an unarmed teenager with nothing but skittles trying to get home. that was somebody who used the availability of dangerous items from his fists to the concrete to cause great bo
: zimmerman's lead defense attorney, mark o'mara, also employing theater. even hauling out this block of cement, saying that he had to shoot in self-defense, to keep his head from being beat into the pavement. >> that is not an unarmed teenager. >> reporter: tension overnight mounting with the jury recessing until morning, delaying the verdict. at times, it seemed almost too much for trayvon martin's parents, now determined to see it through. >> they started this journey over 17 months ago. just asking for simple justice so his death won't be in vain. >> reporter: moments ago, we saw zimmerman in the courtroom, looking relieved. everyone else very anxious, especially trayvon martin's parents. they have been urging calm. i spoke to the police chief. they are not expecting unrest. still, it's all hands on deck at the sanford police department. >> these are nervous hours at the sanford police department. matt, thank you. >>> for more on all of this, let's bring in abc's chief legal affairs anchor and "nightline" anchor, dan abrams. good morning. these jurors have three options. second-de
. >> reporter: mark o'mara used silence. saying nothing for four minutes to demonstrate how long the defense says 17-year-old trayvon martin had to plan to confront george zimmerman. >> for four minutes, trayvon martin could do something that led to his confronting george zimmerman. >> reporter: the defense team played an animation for the jury, demonstrating what they say happened the february night zimmerman and martin met. prosecutors called the video a cartoon and said it was only two minutes, not four, that martin had to decide how to handle the situation. >> we know that with the opportunity to go home, that he did not. >> reporter: the night he died, trayvon martin was returning from a local 7-eleven. zimmerman says martin attacked him and they fought. the neighborhood watch volunteer says the teenager repeatedly slammed his head into the sidewalk. >> that's cement. that is the sidewalk, and that is not an unarmed teenager with nothing but skittles trying to get home. >> reporter: prosecutors got the last word. >> it's heavy, it's hard. if his head had been slammed into something like
. martin savage sat down with lead defense attorney mark o'mara, and we tried to do the same with prosecutors and the martin family. however, they are choosing to speak after a verdict is reached. but o'mara offered to open up just after he finished his closing argument, knowing he has said and done all he can for his client. >> you were not the first attorney in this case? >> no, i wasn't. i was sort of second and third. >> so there's a period you were actually a spectator before you became involved. >> and a
done any better. >> paige, what do you think? i'll give you the defense, how do you think mark o'mara did? john west obviously had his problems with the judge. as a former judge, i don't like defense o fighting with me or the prosecutors. how do you think the defense did here? >> i think it was certainly great strategy not to use mr. west. no more knock-knock jokes. didn't work. >> that was horrible. >> it was. it was important for the defense, though, to step up and go back and talk about the law and talk about reasonable doubt. leave the emotion out of it. remind the jurors at the end of the day, they're going to be instructed be i the judge they have to apply these statutes. so the drier you are for the defense in this case, the less you focus on emotion, the better chance you have of a not guilty verdict. >> all right. gentleman, stay with us. joining us is jeff gold right now, who has been in the courthouse for the last three weeks, but, we'll have much more when we come back after the break on the george zimmerman jury trial. we are on verdict watch as the jury slibt i deliberat

mark o'mara to slyly make the point that he believed he changed his story about the 911 call, especially after talking to his attorney. is that an effect ive strategy? >> it can be because in this case it's coming from the victim's father. i don't know whether it ultimately will be but to undermine his credibility and say, look, he changed his mind to say what was going to help the case most puerto rifrom his point of view, that is the argument. i think at the end of the day it becomes a wash, though i'm not denying the fact that it is an effective tactic by the defense to use the victim's father in the way that they did, as painful as it is to watch. i think each side says what you expect them to say. one it's trayvon, the other side it's zimmerman. at the end of the day, the jury, it going to be up to them and they may very well throw it all out and say trayvon martin's father was under enormous stress, he called in to say his son was missing just before he fond out he'd been killed. after all, we don't know of what to make of what his statement was to the police and just t
